Why My Blog Is Called Katiepassionfruit

I wasn’t intending to write an explanation on this, because I felt that it wouldn’t be as interesting. However, it would be nice to document it somewhere on my blog, just as a memory or out of curious interest from a reader. The only way I can begin this, is by letting you know my first email address. I believe I was around the age of 7 or 8, and it was time to create an email address that I could use to keep in touch with my family and friends. My first email address was: sunny_sweet_stuff@hotmail.com. For those who may not know, I was a classical musician for many years and I really love music. All of my usernames were: Passionfruit4music and I always stuck with it ever since.

I added fruit to make it sound more cute, because even til today, I just love cute things. Which is the sort of thing that is completely relatable if you ever visit Asia. I say this, because I feel when I am in a Western country, it’s sometimes seen as strange for an adult to still love Hello Kitty. Whereas in Asia it’s completely normal. I created my blog in 2013, and remembered brainstorming for a name. It seemed that passionfruit always stuck with me, even though bananas are my favourite fruit. Perhaps it just makes enough sweetness that my blog needed.

What was your first email address?

my attempt at editing hahaha

  1. Hehe great info, thanks for sharing!
    My first email was made up of some silly nickname I had, Iminem (that I am still unfortunately called by plenty).
    It was also my Facebook name and it stuck for years but of late, I look at myself and I know.that Iminem; that child who had a Facebook account and email at 12, wasn’t in existence anymore, she had serious dreams and goals and values now and she wants to be referred to by her real and beautiful native name.
    I still have the email address but I changed my Facebook name and hopefully that name would fizzle out totally soon ☺

    1. Thank you for your comment! It’s always funny and sweet to look back at old nick names. I remember a phase when a few people in primary called me Kitty. You have a beautiful name :)
